It seems that all of the old staples are falling out of favor with me and there is a definate void in the gaming market. Besides not finding an MMORPG worth playing I am getting tired of the older shooters. BF2 was probably my favorite overall shooter but I hated BF2142. BF2142 was a ripoff of the franchise with blue blobby models for bullets and space age sci-fi looking models. Thats about it IMO.
So as the story goes I have been looking forward to Crysis for a long time and it has some pretty promising features. Obviously as Battlefield franchise fan I love the fact that you can operate a large variety of land, air, and sea vehicles. The CryENGINE 2 engine has some serious promise and the hi-res videos on EA's media site are amazing. System requirements are pretty goood as it runs on both XP and Vista and will work with an Nvidia 6600. Processor and RAM requirements are also middle of the road. With 32 player multi player I think it will satisfy the competitive FPSer and overall I think it could be one of the titles to raise the bar this year. Link below to the full article.
